I loved this so much. The balloons floating up into the sky... Perfect.

amazing. I really should leave more than a single word, but there's absolutely nothing else to say

this was so strange and sad and beautiful. I'd love to hear about the idea behind the experiment. If the balloons are really there, if it's just a metaphor, if it really doesn't matter and I should just be going with it! Cause I am, I'm just intrigued!

this is beautiful. they're so broken and it's so haunting, plus I love the prose, it fits the story perfectly. Love it!

Probably the most heartbreakingly beautiful JP/LE I've ever read. Great job.

Holy jesus that was fast!
I must admit, I'm not a huge fan of vers libre; I really don't enjoy the enjambment which has the tendincy to make it flow awkwardly.
However, in saying that I did enjoy this. I think the beautiful imagry and knack you have for characterization allows me to see past my own prejuries and embrace this for what it is - a lovely piece of work JPLE style :)
The only thing that annoyed me, and maybe it's because I'm just a nitpicker for grammar (and yes, i do understand how it goes against the idea of vers libre), is the lack of capitals after full stops and beginning stanzas with 'and.' But given the artistic leeway the style allows, I suppose this really isn't relevant at all.
Plus i feel a bit hypocritical because everyone knows I'm terrible at grammar (and you are my fanfiction hero).
So sorry that I couldn't be of more help. I'll definitly go and look at that other one now :)
Oh, and I almost forgot to thank you. So thank you for caving into my begging for more stories.
